Patient Comments (2)
Elmhurst, IL |
I met with Dr. P yesterday and she could not have been any nicer. I only had to wait a few minutes. The nurse was so nice and caring. Dr. P spent a lot of time with me, examined me, asked questions and was sincerely concerned with my well being. I highly recommend her and her nurses.

She has been very helpful with my RA management. I've been seeing her for over 6 years. I recently recommended her to a friend.
